Re: Relink master clip to different video

I know we do something akin to relinking master clips to a different media file in our color correction process. Here's what I would try. First consolidate the offending clip to another media drive, selecting "Delete Original" when doing the consolidate. Unlink the offending master clip from its media file. To do this hold both ctrl and shift while rightclicking the master clip; UNLINK CLIP will appear in the context menu. Once the media is offline, you can start the relink by righclicking on the master clip without using ctrl and shift. RELINK will appear where UNLINK had been. Your media drives will appear as a pulldown menu, so select the drive where you feel the good clip lives, also uncheck "current project only." Assuming the good and bad clips were of identical duration and had matching metadata, the masterclip that was used in your edits should relink to the good media.
